A heart-healthy diet means eating a balanced meal that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, fish and poultry.
According to one study1, individuals with consistent diets of this dietary pattern saw a 31% lower risk of heart disease alongside other benefits such as a 33% lower risk of diabetes and 20% lower risk of stroke.
Protect your heart and lower your risks of contracting heart diseases by following a heart-healthy diet.
